Life at LUMS
In the fast paced environment of a large university, Residential Colleges provide the close knit community of a small college by forming permanent, cross-sectional, student-and-faculty societies. Within a large university setup, a residential college is a smaller, more personal, autonomous unit, in a federated relationship with the university. This setup provides a richer campus community experience, and an integrated way to address many existing issues, such as a student advising system, upkeep and maintenance of hostel environment, and safety-nets for at-risk students.
The residential college system was implemented at LUMS in 2009, with the aim to improve student life on campus. The vision of the LUMS residential programme is to create an intentional, developmental and comprehensive residential experience that enhances the undergraduate education of students during their four years at LUMS.
Presently, LUMS has four residential colleges, consisting of two male colleges, the M-6 and M-4, and the other comprising of M-5 and M-3, as well as two female colleges, one for F-3 called the Henna Amina College, and the other comprising of F-1 and F-2 called the Mubarak College.
